The Port San Luis Harbor District purchased the Light Station in 1992 from the Federal government to preserve and open this spectacular point to the public as a historic and recreational park. The District commissioned and partnered with the non-profit Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers to restore and operate the facilities for the public benefit. Keepers volunteers have put in over 65,000 hours of labor toward the restoration. The Keepers and Harbor District have partnered to bring in $1.5 million for the restoration and another $1.3 million for the newly rebuilt one-lane road that permits public access of the Keepers vans, and now via the historic trolley.
The Lighthouse Keepers not only offer weekly tours to the Light Station, but also amazing Signature Events throughout the year. If you are looking for a truly unique experience or gift idea, we encourage you to visit us during one of these events. Check the site's calendar to learn more.
Docent-led tours of the Point San Luis Lighthouse are held every Wednesday at noon and Saturdays at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. The tour is $20 per person and reservations are required by calling Lighthouse Keepers at (855) 533-7843.
